The Great Escape

by Mary Clarice Griffiths-Lansdown
Originally published by on 18/06/2017

Motionless I crouch behind my sofa, holding my breath as the banging on my door continues.

My body tenses, I picture their eyes squinting through my letterbox, trying to penetrate the darkness beyond, honed to detect any sound or movement.

They are trying to track me down!

I give silent thanks that I remembered to turn off my phone, lock the back door, draw my curtains against prying eyes.

I had a hunch they would come.

Relief engulfs me as I hear their footsteps retreating.

I dearly love my family, but why do they only visit when Corrie is starting!
